circle station to break down changes that will be coming your way. >> good morning i know it is not good news for those of you who use metro rail or bus but this is what we are hearing as a budgetary request from the general manager of metro. now whether or not you are going to have to pay more depends how much you use metro. let me show you the biggest impact really that will be for people that use paper fare cards not smart cards and these are people infrequent users if you use a pay per fare card, it will be a flat fee, whether it is 2 stops, 10 stops, $6 each way during peak. $4 off peak. 25¢ increase in what you pay to park how is this money going to be used? certainly repairing broken esculators is one thing metro would like to focus on they have a budget short fall of $120 million the general manager said earlier today fox
9:06 am
morning news part of the reasons is that it would make metro easier to use. we are trying to implify the fare structure that was one thing we heard from customers, it is such a complicated fare structure we are trying to simplify it, using a smart fare card and not a fare card it is better for customers we will put in machines at every station but those folks who still want to use a fare card, only come occasionally, this is a simple way to get on we are eliminating the peak of the peak fare. >> that fare structure got more complicated a couple years ago when metro changed things including the unpopular, peak of the peak fare that would be abolished under this new proposal. this goes to the board thursday, this will be a lot of debate and consideration the final plan h likely be enacted by summer time. i am stacey cohappen back to you >> i like your music stacey.

9:31 am
have that information at hand before they were nominated. >> you do understand you got to get information out but know who you are selecting so you can do that homework in advance. >> i wonder do they thing think they wouldn't -- think they wouldn't be questioned because they are the vatican. >> people picked up because the language in the bio one bishop was described as having quote a strong tendency to conservativism especially regarding abortion and home sexuality made him one of the most talked about religious men in the country it is not exactly you know,. >> right you are not telling us anything. tell me something. >> so if you are looking you can't find it on our wikipedia, it is the italian website. >> a better read. >> likely in italian. >> it would be. which will limit my ability to read it. >> even the vatican using wikipedia.

9:35 am
watching television on tablet computers, the las vegas consumer electronics show ends friday. what do consumers like to complain about? you might expect them to be upset with bank charges phone providers internet providers topping all in this annual angies list is home warranty companies, it is the seventh year in a row, home warranty providers got the worst grades from consumers, angie hicks founder of an gentlemen's list it is good to -- angie's list it is good to see you. >> good morning. >> i was surprised home warranty companies got this most hated designation tell us why. >> home warranty companies have been on the list for several years now it really comes down to consumers not getting what they expect, a home warranty, warranties for existing homes, are often times bought or given at the time of a home purchase
9:36 am
consumers often times are just not reading the document understanding exactly how the warranty works so as a consumer if you have a warranty make sure you understand how the process is going the work, and then also, it comes down to the quality of the service companies, the home warranty company uses to make repars let's face it the repair work is only as good as the service companies doing that work, and some times we hear complaints, consumers are not happy with the repair versus replace decision because the home warranty company makes that decision, under that warranty. >> got you so how do we sort of, you know, you talked about reading all of your information there, but how do we do other things to make sure we have a pleasant experience and not a negative one like most people are having? so obviously yes, read the document make sure you understand what is covered just because you had a home inspection doesn't mean it is covered under the home warranty these are two entirely different things then also, do what you can to research the
9:37 am
service companies, the warranty campaign uses, that way -- company uses that way when something does come up the water heater breaks whatever it is you can feel comfortable with the provider they are sending out, one tip i received was ask the warranty company for three providers on their approved list and then research them on her own and pick out of the three which one she wanted to use. that is a great idea. >> seems like we are putting all of our faith into these companies and there is another step to be done to, with our due diligence. >> that's right. i mean it is one of those situations where you still keep in mind someone is coming in doing repair work in your house you want to make sure you have the best company you can get. >> how many folks participate annually in this survey? >> well, we review all reports received on an gentlemen's list during the year -- angie's list during the year, hundreds of thousands we use that data to
9:38 am
compile which categories received the highest per season tang of apes. >> other companies we don't like to deal with credit unions, internet service providers and travel agencies, but let's end on a positive note there are some companies that seem to get passing grades. >> we do, when we look at the least complained about categories, piano tuning, hauling, mail box repair, home organization all examples of categories that received lowest number of complaints they are much more personal services when it comes down the it communication is key to a good service relationship that is probably what we are seeing as a commonality in those least complained about categories. >> as always do your homework. angie of course is founder of angie's list thank you. happy new year. >> thank you you too. >> great information. >> i was surprised too. home warranty companies.
